About Project

CNC milling is still one of the most popular technologies for machining engineering metal parts.
CNC machining offers distinct benefits like pinpoint precision – just a few micrometers on every axis – which in turn has implications for achieving a superior surface finish without the need for supplementary processing.
When it comes to tolerances, CNC machining will also typically outperform 3D printing as a ‘heat and reform’ process isn’t required. Additionally, CNC machining is great for heavy-duty (literally heavy materials) end-use parts.

Solution

  • Step 1: The CAD model was examined and transformed into a CNC-compatible format with the software AutoCAD.
  • Step 2: A most suitable type of CNC machine was chosen according to the complexity of the product design and the cost of the workpiece.
  • Step 3: Certain operations were configured and the G-codes were input on the machine. The workpiece was mounted on the machine as well.
  • Step 4: The workpiece got shaped and the holes were drilled automatically. It would be inspected during and after the machining process for quality assurance.
